on the fed. over to steve liesman. >> maria, thanks. fed vice chair janet yellen saying that the federal reserve shows optimal policy could dictate lower rates through 2016. also saying the fed could eliminate calendar date guidance entirely and replace it with economic targets. that's been discussed among others. charlie evans says she's strongly supportive of using these economic targets and they would promote automatic stabilizers, allowing the market to adjust automatically to incoming data. it would also help the public understand fed policy. also says the fed is considering forecasting optimal policy pass by individual members. so by the way, janet yellen chairs the subcommittee on communications. these are important words from an important person. on the fed and inflation, she's remiebdsing us a 2% inflation target is the central tendency, not the ceiling. if the 2% is a ceiling, what would happen is all the deviations would be below 2%. she's reiterating what the fed has said. it's symmetrical. so maria, at the end of the day, these are important comments from janet yellen, who's

not be resolved in the next few weeks. you might recall casino magnet steve wynn announced a special dividend, before the election. goldman sachs wrote about this early in the fall, actually naming wynn as a candidate for this. they also noted it's more common for these things in q4. goldman didn't just nail it on wynn, they called it with franklin resources, transdigm and western refining. we'll watch them in the new year, if no deal is made, of course, bill, walmart up about 1.5%. back to you. >> brian, thank you very much. let's talk about this. many expect vinnesteto see thisf the looming cliff. is it wise or investors to try to buy stocks guessing on what the dividend tax will be coming 2013. >> michael, you don't think this is a good idea, these companies bringing the money forward. why not? why not help out an investor? you know taxes are probably going to be higher come january 1st next year. why not give the money snerl. >> i think a bad idea to take the money forward. if you take the money out of wynn and take the $750 million out, if you believe in trickle down economics will get b

is speaking. the embargo's lifted. steve leisman, what's he saying? >> fed chairman ben bernanke saying the federal reserve will continue to use policy tools to support the economic recovery and making some positive comments about the housing markets saying for the first time in a number of years the housing sector is improving and adding to jobs and growth in the economy but saying housing is not out of the woods. it still faces significant obstacles. pointing out though the benefits of the housing revival remain quite uneven. saying that strengthening the housing recovery is still a critical challenge for all policymakers. makes a special point here that i haven't seen in at least a while, if ever, talking about the impact of the housing crisis on lower income and minority communities, saying they have been disproportionately affected by the housing bust. i want to spend a little time talking about this because there is a message to bankers in this. he's pointing out, since 2006 when you look at purchase mortgages to african-americans and hispanics, it is down 65%. down 50% to non-his

and the entire capitol hill family of staff of the passing of my dear friend and chief of staff steve vermilion. for nearly 25 years i have known steve as a friend, family man and committed public servant. my service in congress has been greatly enhanced by steve's invaluable advice and knowledge regarding all aspects of the legislative process. as a 17-year veteran of capitol hill, steve will be dealer missed by the capitol family for his warmth and his sense of service to this institution and our nation. steve began his service in the house of representatives in 1986, serving as communications director for then congressman bob livingston. he subsequently served as a legislative snippet for congressman james sensenbrenner, as chief of staff to former congressman lincoln diaz-balart, and my chief of staff. an avid and champion rover who, steve was recognized for his work throughout his years in congress with such distinction as the congressional staff leadership award and the congress allege hispanic leadership institute. steve demonstrated his commitment to service with great dignity these pas
the other side. i think you're more with steve on this. do you think that maybe there's a little bit of slowing but it's a huge opportunity? >> well, for me, we're seeing the worst is behind us. i think q3 data have shown to us the trade volumes, the in and outs recovering from our perspective, our ships are looking well. you look at our ships 95% fully laden from asia to europe, frankly, at this point in time our ships are 100% fully laden, and people have to understand that we talk about international trades, with he talk about value. for our business we talk about the volume. value is one thing but volume is another thing, and during good times, frankly speaking probably you know, goods are more valuable, probably value is good, and in bad times people will take for more high value commodities, gifts to low value, but potentially more volume-driven commodities, we're seeing the consumers shift in more and more towards low end consumer products. i think you see that from walmart, from jcpenney, on the show about ten minutes ago. so those things are happening. that's the fundamental
the value of the show. >> i am "fast money." >> i am stephanie link. i am "fast money." >> i am steve grosso. i am "fast money." it's about who lives in the yellow house, the green, and the apartment house, too. today we not only honor the oval office, but we honor the cubicle, and the home office as well. because today it's about all of us. and no matter who you are, you're the commander-in-chief of your own life. ♪ you're the commander-in-chief of your own life. when you take a closer look... the best schools in the world... see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> fact or fiction, will citigroup break up? from pension funds to nuns, calls of splitting up the bank are growing later. a split could actually unlock tremendous value. >> we think that upside could be as much as 50%. so that's really the reason to get
yet be more twists in the plot. steve kingston, "bbc news," washington. >> for more, i am joined by a senior correspondent for national journal. thank you for coming in. is this what this is really all about. it sounds like a soap opera. there is sex involved, and that is why we are interested in it, or is there more to it? does it matter? >> it sounds like an august scandal in washington where congress is out and they are looking for something to cover. it is november this time. i think that it could be what you see on the surface, which is some people giving into temptation in high places. the mighty have fallen. but if it puts a lot of tension between the f.b.i. and the c.i.a., which they have always had a lot of tension between those two anyway, if you have the white house and congress disagreeing about the time line and who knew what when, this could have a lot of legs. it could be unfortunate for a president just starting out a second term. >> if this really was not an issue of national security but just an affair between two consenting adults, then the f.b.i., there they a
, what is going to be like, steve? >>> we'll see increasing clouds coming in, it will lead to more rain tomorrow but not too bad right now we will end up cooler today and highs will be in the 60s for many i guess my graphics are not of ming but you'll just have to trust me, here is sal. >>> we have had a couple of accidents west 80 san pablo road. let's go to some live pictures here. this is traffic you can see it is moving welcoming to the willow pass grade and this morning if you are driving in
leaders to work together. congress has a voter mandate not to raise taxes. joining us now is steve moore from the "wall street journal." thank you for hopping on the phone to talk to us. i am really interested in the interview that you did. he said over the weekend "let me put it very clearly, i am not willing to turn off taxes for the sequester." >> one of the things that came through in my interview with mitch mcconnell is there is no love lost between these guys. there are some real raw feelings. mitch mcconnell was very frustrated by what happened in the last round of negotiations. that happened back in late 2011. which is, by the way, why we reached this fiscal cliff because they could not reach a deal. i think what came out oo that conversation was two things, one, republicans are suspicious and getting behind closed door meetings with the president because they do not quite frankly trust him and, two, they really do feel quite strongly about raising tax rates. we will not raise the rates because we honestly believe this will hurt the economy. by the way, you heard speaker boehner
that is not at an overcrowded trade. >> just one more button up on it. when you saw the htc it is a total divergence from steve jobs. he wanted to fight tooth and nail to come out with a better product. seems like they are settling and coasting on iphone. i did buy google. i would rather be a buyer of googleal google. >> for more let's bring in steven, technical analyst. what do you see in the charts? seems like a few people are seeing. >> we are looking at the rising 200-day moving average and the s&p 500 is moving. there is a difference between 1370 and 1340 and that is where we think the market can see the support. normal season ality about 1.5%. we are more worried next year. we think you can get a pullback in the first quarter of 2013 in conjunction of the presidential cycle. normally you are weak from the second half of the first year which is 2013 into 2014. we think we can get a rally and a better opportunity to get more profit. >> you are also specifically looking at mega caps as one reason why you are bullish. what are you looking at? >> we think mega caps this year emerged as leadership. we have the
traders doing with it? >> on monday steve grasso and i professed our mutual love for yahoo. the fact that the stock was only down two cents today was impressive. we saw a call by one buying who bought 2,500 of the jan 1 calls. they are breaking even at the 20.20. when you are getting into fresh ground defining your risk by buying calls makes a lot of sense. >> let's see to seema mody tracking the twitter fear. >> facebook is the big story. if you have been checking your twitter feed you might have been able to catch the rally. jc tweeted yesterday with thousands of articles being written about a facebook selloff on expiring lock ups wouldn't it be hilarious if facebook rallied instead. everyone thought it would be down. the question is as paul points out in this tweet does the rally that we saw today have legs? the rally post earnings didn't hold. take a look at the chart. facebook reported on october 23 shares rose and then moved lower. can i hold this level and move higher from here? >> we are using kids dynamite logic. >> you would be surprised. twitter is right. if you would have
a critical mass when you have the front man of a well known band talking about sequestration. >> steve jobs, there were very few people he believed in. but the one guy he always wanted in his corner was bono. he wanted him in his economic segment because he's so smart. >> have you ever met him. >> no. >> i have. >> you have? >> i met him up in dabos. >> partied with him? >> it was a late night. but we just spent a little time with him and i was with andrew sorken, he said can we do lunch sometime? can i get your number? he said i'll find you. >> i can't believe you just gave that on air. that's great. >> that's my new one. >> the big news, was he found? >> i don't know. >> we got to get andrew on the show now. >> maybe he'll phone in. >> get an update. >>> today on the closing bell the two men behind simpson bowls deficit reduction plan which has been touted as the answer to the fiscal cliff. >> meantime, duelling earnings from discount retail rivals walmart versus target. which store chain is your best bet as we go into the holiday shopping season. but first -- >> coming up, investigating
the issue is that we focus too much on trying to prevent risk instead of managing it better? >> steve tried to argue for solace, which is an interesting concept. yes, back here. >> richard downey from the center for hemispheric u.s. david, you mentioned in the election that romney lost and we keep the strategy of footprint and europe would like to see what leadership. the reason i see most of the countries would seek greater involvement of the u.s., not all us paula mentioned. i wonder, a lot of reasons as you mentioned, david, the people in the united states are ready to take on that role. economic reasons from afghanistan and iraq are tired of it. the u.s. taking less of a leadership role that one day will the back and regret it is custom to the u.s. that meeting. >> and there was one over here. yes. >> thank you. -- >> name and affiliation, please. >> my name is my name is umbrella salÉ from afghanistan. immediately i have a small comment followed by a question. immediately after 9/11, the new normal west to kill and capture al qaeda taliban, bring them to justice, deny the space for mi
minutes. [applause] >> thank you so much and good morning, everyone, and welcome, steve. it's really, really a pleasure to have you here in this morning, and we're going to dive right in. i want to begin, first, by giving you credit for speaking to the world affairs could coun. i believe it wasn't only last year, but the year before when steve hadley challenged all of us to come up with a focus, a set of issues, in fact, that the councils across the united states should be honing in on. well, as you know, this year's conference is galvanized around a set of issues, u.s. national security, six topic issues for the president in 2013. and let me just recap those for you, because we want to drill down in these. the councils have selected u.s. economic competitiveness, u.s. education competing globally, the middle east, china, afghanistan/pakistan and u.s. energy policy as the six top issues. so starting with that, looking at it strategically, do you feel that those are the core issues before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? um, if not, what would y
, the color ran from the face, and he said, i'm sorry, my name is steve if you want to report me, and then he ran for the door. [laughter] i felt bad for steve. i liked steve. i chased after him to ensure he knew no hard feelings. every time i say hi steve in the hallway so he knows there's no hard feelings. his name is probably not steve. [laughter] so, you know, when i started this year, 2012, i was looking forward to two things, two steps i believed would help us fundamentally transform our government into that kind of government or something more closely representing, resemilling that government that our founding fathers end visionedded for us. one of the events, they would occur in june, probably for the end of jupe, probably the last of june, which i identified adds june 28th -- i was right. the other date i recognized as potentially transformative of our government, the other date that i recognize that i thought would probably have a positive impact op the development of our constitutional system of government was november 6th. i would just like to say at the outset that i want to than
be a better buy either las vegas sands or wynn resorts? >> i think that steve wynn is a winner. i don't say that to be, you know, glib. i think you want to own wynn here. i say that if it got to the mid 100s you have to pull the trigger. it's can't back away now. steve in connecticut? >> caller: looking at u.s. domestic play, you did a segment in june, it rallied and then reported earnings on october 24th, it seemed like the earnings were great. great guidance. but it took a 9.5% beat as of the next day. does the stock still have room to roll? >> i think it does. i was talking with stephanie, the research director of there is a class of stocks that are up 50% or more. unless they blow away the numbers and get you to do a raise, they just don't go up. that's part of what's their problem. red bull? that's right. finally be a bull in the china shop. the macro says it. the micro says it. things are stabilizing. i think 2013 will be a very good year for china which is why in 2012 you have to buy the fxi. stay with cramer. >>> coming up, trucking? westport innovations seemed out
to be had. >> steve, you have some breaking news earlier. you reported on janet yellen. tell us what that says about where we're headed in terms of economic growth in 2013. >> well, i think it tells us the fed is going to remain as loose as it possibly can through '13, '14, '15, and now even '16. janet yellen saying an optimal policy path, one that stays as close to 2% on inflation and tries to get the unemployment rate down to 6% could mean the fed remains easy through early 2016. by the way, they're thinking of scrapping all of that calendar date guidance through mid-2015. scrap it. she's strongly supportive in scrapping it in exchange for economic targets. the strongest signal yet we're going to have changes in the fed's communication policy. >> rick santelli, what do you make of it? >> with the fed, it depresses me. they're dancing around the edges. these aren't discussions about how we can stop the low-interest rate scenario so the government doesn't borrow too much at low interest rates. we're talking about targets. what happens to targets during crisis? they throw them out the
. they could not celebrate this success without the leadership of steve israel, the chair. when i asked him to take this responsibility to serve our country and colleagues, i i said to all of you that he is a gold standard of a member of congress. he knows the policy. he cares about american people. that drives him to do the politics to increase our numbers to pass legislation that takes us for to improve the lives of americans. before i bring him on, i wanted to have a representative of the freshman class to speak on behalf of the class. i am very honored to welcome a fighter for the middle class, a real representative of his generation, congressman alec patrick murphy. his election is a cuase for celebration. his election sends the message to a new generation of americans that their voices will be heard at the table. congratulations, congressman a -elect, patch of mercy. -- patrick murphy. >> thank you for your leadership and for being here with us. thank you for your support. my name is patrick murphy from florida district 18. the youngest member of congress. i did defeatists someone you
to break the pledge next. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. bp has paid overthe people of bp twenty-threeitment to the gulf. billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger.

to you again soon. >> thanks so much. >> dan with alpha one capital. let's quick this around. steve weiss with us today. what do you make of the microsoft news? a lot of people have been positive on this company for the last several months. >> well, it's disastrous. you have basically the architect of windows 8 that's resigning just as windows 8 launches. so you wonder, is it just the personality conflict with ballmer? and they've been together for a long, long time. so i don't think it's really it, or is there something wrong with the launch, not getting off as microsoft hoped. i know it's a cheap stock, nothing's changed, it's got a big yield, nothing's changed. to me, you're marking time in the stock. dan talks about telecom equipment. i think most of the stocks are commodity-type stocks like. >> rks dsu. i would rather go with our old standby, qualcomm. i would rather go with sky works, who reported a disappointing quarter, but still has tremendous growth as they pick up market share. why are they building up market share? they're building up usage of mobile pads, smartphones. >> joe
decade? i feel like it wasn't long ago when we were talking about steve ballmer and how he should be ousted because the stock had done poorly over the last decade, it was a lost decade for microsoft. fall of last year to march of this year, that's when the stock started perking up. we gave ballmer a pass on this because there's doubts about window 8. >> all the excitement from the stock, from 26 all the way into the 30s was about a product cycle. pc upgrade cycle. they don't exist, people. at the end of the day when you look at large enterprises they don't even have the last version of windows on their systems right now. to me, if that was why you're buying the stock, that wasn't a great reason. when you think about the acquisitions they made, innovate, compete with companies like apple they're incapable of doing it. at the end of the day, other than xbox, there was a lot of false hope. if you're buying the stock, $55 billion in cash, it's a great place to park cash. that's fine. it looks like a bond in some ways. don't buy it because you expect them to innovate on the product lin
that as the backdrop. steve, good morning to you. >> peter, very good day to you as well. let me tie in the story with what you've been talking about in the united states, ie, the debate on going after the lection about austerity, about the fiscal cliff. we have our own fiscal cliff in europe. it is called austerity. it is going on especially throughout southern europe. it is designed to get the deficits and these enormous debt to gdp levels under control. the problem, of course, is there a human cost and there is an economic cost. the cost of the human front is unemployment. in spain and greece, for instance, 25% of the people are unemployed. and there is negative growth. in spain today we had negative 1.6% gdp figures. if austerity goes on, the people you see on the pictures are protesting and understandably. they're seeing the standard of living decline aggressively on the back of the tax hikes. it sounds familiar to the debate you're having in the united states. the difference is we're living it now. you're talking about it in the future as well. so the potential ramifications of the fiscal c
minority leader, you're leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell told my colleague steve moore, says he does not believe that is his mandate. >> look. as you know i'm a fierce advocate for tax reform for all the reasons we talked about earlier. competitiveness. america is falling behind in terms of our competentive position and one of the main reasons is our tax system is antiquated. it is inefficient. there are ways to fix it. every other country in the world by the way, oecd countries, have transformed, reformed, lower the rates. think about it. we haven't touched it since ronald reagan really. in 1986. bill clinton did raise the rate one point but we haven't done anything to touch our rate and reform our code. every other country, all of them have. taxes gone from 16% to 15%. you do business there. this flow of capital will follow countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is oppor
